'Well-trained' police fight the region’s ice woes

ROCKHAMPTON CIB boss Scott Moon knows too well the situation he and his colleagues get caught up in when dealing with one of the region's most harmful substances.

Thankfully, Queensland Police officers are well-equipped with the appropriate training to take on the problems associated with ice, and the people who use it.

Based on his experiences in the force here in Rockhampton, Detective Senior Sergeant Moon said ice often caused behaviour problems with the users, who sometimes did not sleep for days at a time.

"They are erratic, they become violent and our police are well-trained to deal with these situations," he said.

Det Snr Sgt Moon said officers were trained to know the indication of someone using ice.

This included observing one's behaviour.

He said someone sweating profusely was a sure sign he or she was using the lethal drug.

If you have any information that could help the police crackdown on this illicit drug, you can call Police Link on 131 444, or the Rockhampton Police Station on 4932 3500.
